The Alchemy of DesireEen jong stel verruilt de grote stad voor een oud huis in de Himalaya De anonieme mannelijke hoofdpersoon kan zich hierdoor in alle rust op het schrijven storten Hij kampt echter. This is a very well written book with a steady subject at hand My main issue is that it is over 500 pages long of which 200 pages could've been cut to get us to the point This book is split up into five sections Karma Sathya Kama etc translated as action love money desire etcWe start with our nameless narrator and his wife Fizz at a crux in their marriage after fifteen years For some reason he just doesn't desire her body any as he has constantly for the duration of their relationship The reason is not yet fully explained but is touched upon in the back cover copy We end the first section with his wife leaving him We begin the next section with their relationship in its better moments his struggling life as a writer their struggling for money as he finds the great novel within him Indian history Then we're on to our narrator's family history of their relationship odd jobs they work to keep themselves afloat random stories etc etc In the 'Money' section we learn he has inherited money from an aunt who disproved of his marrying a Muslim and so they spend recklessly and end up buying a home in Chandigarh On to the next section where the reader FINALLY learns as to what caused the narrator to draw away from his wife He has found than sixty notebooks from an American woman that had inhabited the home and whose soul and perhaps curse inflicts him sexually then through abuse in his dreams causing him to be completely spent by the time he awakes to his beautiful Fizz The next portion is her story as he's been able to decipher it through her journals and here we have even SEX written tastefully but clearly until we move on to the final section where our narrator realizes he is nothing without Fizz though he has sat for over two years letting these journals consume him His last line is a reversal of the first line in the book realizing that real intimacy is at it's best when love is involvedLike I said a VERY sexual book I'd say 75% has a reference details or speaks to intense fornication between the main characters or others in particular through the American woman's journal when she was in France and her remaining time in India with her lover Tejpal tips to India's history and background in sections that aren't too daunting to read about but they do tend to shift focus from the main narrative causing one to want to skip I'd suggest reading nonetheless as I found myself enthralled by certain chapters sections but again think this could've been condensed to make the story flow and for us not to have to wallow with the protagonist

Do you remember Tarun Tejpal The Editor in Chief of the revolutionary newspaper Tehelka Very recently he has published a novel The name of the book is The Alchemy of Desire Last week I bought it from The Starmark on Lord Sinha Road I would not mind saying that it is a nice fiction inspite of the fact that I have not finished even half of it yet He sets the mood with the powerful starting line which says Love is not the greatest glue between two people Sex is How true Being a person who loves to call himself impulsive I would still say that emotional bondings attached with physical attraction are much stronger compared to the platonic love of old Hindi flicks And I can say that from my personal experience of being a person who have been in and out of love uite a number of timesThe story revolves around an impecunious young couple from a small town in India who are madly in love with eachother move to the big city The man works hard on a novel while caring only about his endless desire for his beautiful wife In time they leave the city and moves to an old house in the Himalayas While renovating their new home the husband discovers a chest full of diaries maintained by the previous owner of the house In those diaries he slowly uncovers a dark secret a forbidden secretIt a nice buy and is worth every penny And once you start reading it it's pretty difficult to put it down It is published by Picador India and the cover price is Rs325
